included energy infrastructure, levies, and inland waterways. inland waterways getting a d-minus, barely above a failing grade. how, if you know, does the u.s. infrastructure compare with that of other countries? in some surveys, very poorly, i believe. >> well, what we do know is that our infrastructure is a part of our competitiveness in the world. if we want to be competitive we need to invest. we can look at things such as china investing some 9% in their infrastructure. europe investing 5% of their gdp in infrastructure. yet you look at the united states, and we're down around 2%. and that's about half of what we invested 50 years ago. >> what about bridges? where -- how -- you know, there have been major stories having to do with the safety of our bridges, that major collapse in minneapolis a few years ago, are they getting better or not? >> yes. they're actually getting better. they improved over our 2009 report card. again, reflecting an increase investment in bridges. we're seeing that around the nation as local leaders step up and start replacing bridges that need to be replace
natural resources to create energy. it's relied very heavily on nuclear power and that nuclear power became a subject of great controversy after the power plant disaster followed the tsunami. what's the state of play now? is japan abandoning its stated desire to move away from nuclear energy? >> well, the reaction you just describe exactly what happened in tokyo or in japan as i should say in the immediate 12 months that followed. the government at that time partly because they were very much aware that they could not respond to the nuclear melt down as well as they could have so they went completely the other way and declared that japan will be a nuclear power plant free country in some 20 to 25 years from now. however, since then japanese expands two summers and as you may know wherever you are it's very humid, hot, much, much worse than the d.c./metropolitan area. people actually feel the power shortages and the implication of trying to reduce their dependence on nuclear power in a too soon, too short time span. the current government has a little bit more balanced approach, they
. the president is saying what he made a mistake with in 2008 and 2009 was he didn't bring all the energy of his campaign -- he didn't enengage that in selling his agenda. gwen: he could have done that when he had another campaign to run, right? >> his organizing for america then just went into the d.n.c. and it was uneffective. the question is how is he going to make this effective because he's not getting the donors because they prefer to give to candidates in a race rather than for some broad agenda cause. and it's different to ask? be to vote than to ask them to call their congressman. so we'll see if they can get it to work this time but it's not a guarantee. gwen: so what is the path of the grand bargain is there is one to be had? >> i don't know if there is necessarily one to be had. i guess the question is there something to be had that gets us to the point where we can say the economy is getting better and we don't foresee anything pushing it off course. if the president wants anything that he talked about in his state of the union address and his inaugural to come through, we need mone
